1 A "cookie" is a small text file used for storing information, which the website sends to your browser program. Its only purpose is for the site to remember certain information in relation to you and your settings used when browsing.
In the settings of Internet browsers it is possible to authorise the receipt of various types of cookies or refuse them. You may also request a warning message, so that on every occasion you can decide to allow them or refuse them. If you want to know more about “cookies” and how to adjust your settings, click the section on “cookies” in the “Help” menu of your browser program.

2 "Internet tags" are smaller than “cookies” and tell the website’s server information such as an IP address and the type of browser program on the user’s computer. These “tags” may also be placed on online advertisements directed to the website and on various pages of the website. Such “tags” show how many times the given website has been visited and what information was viewed or downloaded most frequently.

3 "Navigation data" (log files, server logs and clickstream data) serve to improve the content of the website, used for market research purposes and to simplify communication to visitors.

4 The “URL”, otherwise known as a web address, is the standardised address of certain resources found on the Internet (for example, texts, images).

5 Individual web pages use the so-called Internet protocol (IP) address. The IP address is actually a number that your Internet service provider allocates to your computer; it is via this that you gain access to the web. The IP address is not suitable for determining the identity of the user, as in most cases it changes continuously (on every occasion when you connect to the Internet), in other words it is much more dynamic than static (linked to a certain user’s computer) information. Using the IP address we can identify certain server faults as well as the shortest path required to get to the individual pages.
